Folks will drive miles just for a glimpse of your garden. Live for generations, add beauty year round!
Unlike ordinary peony varieties, these woody bushes do not die back to the ground in winter -- instead grow larger and more beautiful each year! The bush seldom grows higher than 4 feet; but spreads gracefully each succeeding year until it reaches as much as 5 feet across. Like the Giant Redwoods, they live for generations -- for a century or even more! So amazingly hardy, living blooming plants of 200 and 300 years old are reported from China and Japan!
Rich purplish-pink with golden stamens. Very strong grower. The flowers though dark, are very delicately textured and draw much attention.
